DIY TEXASBOARS TIRE FEEDER
BUMP TIRE HOG FEEDER
Let's face it, electronic automated feeders can be expensive and a hassle to maintain. Sometimes the location just isn't ideal for them. Flood zones can be disastrous to expensive feeders. No only that but thieves take them, cattle eat hem, and hogs destroy them.
When it comes to baiting hogs with corn, well wild hogs can eat 2+ sacks of corn a night. The hogs need to work for that bait so it'll slow'em down and make it last.
We need hog feeders that are cheap, tough, work and we can make'm ourselves. Here's a wild hog feeder for corn that's cheap, easy to build, and it's tough.
♦Its called a used tire♦
My concern is trying to explain how to make it. May sound simple, but simple and technology don't always go hand-in-hand. The two videos below are the same but they are in two different codecs in order for them to play across as many browsers and devices as possible.
Not sure what to call it? Hogs have to bump that tire to get the corn out so I thought about naming it BUMP FEEDER. It's a tire, so why not call it a TIRE FEEDER or just add it up and call it a BUMP TIRE HOG FEEDER? It's your's when you make it so you can name it what you want.
I can add the following advice:
♦The larger the holes, the faster the corn spills out. The quicker the hogs will empty it.
♦Try to avoid "STEEL BELTED" tires. Removing the strands of steel is tough unless you have a torch to burn'em out of the way.
♦Holes need to be at least 3/4 inch and clear of all obstructions. Corn spills out nicely with a clean 3/4 in hole.
♦Wet gummy clay can clog the spill holes.
